I am off for some well deserved (if i do say so myself) R & R for 1 1/2 hours this afternoon.
Not to air my dirty laundry in public, but lets just say, after an absolute week from hell I cannot wait!
Hot rock massage with an extended foot and face massage-ahh- I am drooling just thinking about it...
Hope you all have a wonderful relaxing weekend!

An absolutely beautiful table scape with vintage books, glass jar filled with pretty vintage cotton reels and a simple jar of roses... image via wonderland

What pretty little book spines. Don't they look lovely all lined up in a row? image via sabino
I have loved books all my life- reading them and re-reading them, the smell of old books, losing yourself in another place and time... I love them also on a visual/decor basis- on bookshelves with all the pretty spines lined up in a row, the covers (yes I am guilty of buying books based purely on their cover) and as decor items.

Well, there was definitely no indecision's or wasting time on Saturday morning! It's amazing what you can get done with a combination of red bull, an empty house and a sewing machine in just a few hours!
Dad and kiddies were all at football for the morning, so with bubby sleeping I managed to whip up 6 pairs of winter jammies for the girls using up some flannelet, trims and long sleeve T's I have had lying around for ages.
And of course there is nothing cuter then little girls in matching pj's is there?
I made them 3 pairs each- first pair are from a large red love heart print fabric with matching heart applique, the second pair from some pretty pink and green rose print fabric with matching bird applique and lastly a candy strip pair with circle appliques and ric rak trim (balloons, lollipops?).
Not bad for a mornings work!
Thank God it was put back on after it got axed in Aus after the first season...
I am really loving it at the moment and it never fails to put a smile on my face.
There is seriously a lack of decent shows on, especially chick flick type ones AND especially after the devastating exit of the bees knees of ALL tv shows of ALL time - Sex and the City (yes, I am aware it ended years ago...but I am still in mourning- who agrees it could have gone on for at least 2 more seasons?).
Of course nothing will ever take its place but at least it gives us something girly and fun to enjoy in between re watching Sex and the City episodes on DVD...over and over and over again.
